Benefits of Fish Oils

Written by bigredhulk. Posted in Articles, Nutrition, Supplements

Over the last five years there has been a lot of hype around fish oils. It seems as though every person can benefit from consuming fish oils, but is it really all it is hyped up to be. There are many different forms of fish oils but what really stands out when looking at fish oils is the EPA and DHA dosage.

The main reason why fish oil is so popular is because of the Omega-3 value. This is found in the fatty layer of cold water fish and shellfish. These are extracted and put into gel capsules for easy consumption. Not all Omega-3 supplements come from fish. Some EFA or Essential Fatty Acid supplements will use walnuts, flax seed, and nut oils as  Omega-3 supplements. Though these products are good, they work slightly different and it is important to note which one you are specifically looking for.

Fish Oils contain long chain Omega-3’s which are labeled as EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). These have been shown to have a variety of health benefits ranging from healthy hormone levels to a more healthy functional brain.

Testosterone is something that every man needs to function; the lack of testosterone can lead to the storage of fat and possibly depression. Fish oils can help aid the body to increase healthy testosterone levels. The body needs the appropriate amount of fats, amino acids, and cholesterol. Using a Fish Oil supplement helps to increase good fatty acids while dieting and in turn can improve hormone levels.

One of the most abundant fatty acids in the brain is DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). Increasing DHA may help support brain health. Some studies have shown that eating fish once a week can help improve chances of decreasing the likelihood of Alzheimer’s. This isn’t to say that it will help while someone has Alzheimer’s, but it is interesting to see its effects on the brain.

Fish Oils have many benefits to the human body and only two were discussed here, but if you are interested in learning more about fish oils click here to find out which one will work best for you.

What is Methylcobalamin?

Written by Jules Riley. Posted in Articles, Reviews

Acetyl-CoA is very important to brain and physical health, but how does one know if their body is producing enough acetyl-CoA? Through eating things like nuts, red meat and green vegetables many people can get a healthy dose of Vitamin B12. The B-12 vitamin is very important to the production of Acetyl-CoA in the body.

If someone if a vegetarian or has a hard time eating the things mentioned above there is a supplement that can help with the body’s production of Acetyl-CoA and absorbs more sufficiently than regular B12. This supplement is called Methylcobalamin.

Methylcobalamin, an active coenzyme form of vitamin B-12, is essential for cell growth and replication. It is more concentrated than other forms of B-12 in the cerebrospinal fluid where it can be used by the central nervous system. It donates methyl groups to the myelin sheath that insulates certain nerve fibers. It may also play a role in maintaining a healthy sleep-wake cycle, as well as normal nerve function.

Whether you are trying to stay healthy or want to help give your brain a boost, supplementing with Methylcobalamin can be very beneficial. Due to the nature of how Methylcobalamin breaks down in the body, it is more functional in helping with health. Methylcobalamin helps to improve the production of Choline and Choline is shown to help with learning and overall brain health. Methylcobalamin has also been shown to help improve muscle endurance, the reason for this is because of its ability to improve the absorption of oxygen into blood.

Not everyone needs to be taking Methylcobalamin, but as you can tells it is very important to health and needs to be understood whether or not you should be taking it. If you have been feeling sluggish during workouts or your brain is losing its wits, then maybe Methylcobalamin could help you.

Fight the Common Cold with Andrographis

Written by Jules Riley. Posted in Reviews

Every year you tell yourself that you are not going to get sick and what happens as the cold and flu season dies down – you get sick! DANG IT! This year prepare yoruself, instead of taking an effervescent tab that has everything mixed from a herbal medicine cabinet try supplementing with Andrographis.

Andrographis works in two ways to help fight colds.

First it works as a anti-inflammatory. When you get really sick it is usually because of a sinus infection and there is swelling in the nasal passages. A sinus infection is the worst because it leaves you not being able to breath, and gives you a massive headache and can cause you to not get sleep. Having a proper anti-inflammatory can help loosen the nasal passage before it ever gets clogged so you can stop the sinus infection before it ever starts.

Another way that Andrographis can help improves your immune system. It has been noted that supplementing with andrographis help stimulate the immune system so that the defense walls against the common cold never shut down. This may be because of the antibiotic property that it has. Though it is not fully stated that it is an antibiotic it is often used before taking a serious antibiotic to help the body prepare for antibiotics.

If you are planning to get a head start on the cold and flu season you can try andrographis. Andrographis can be taken with Siberian ginseng, vitamin C and Curcumin.
